Fanfic / Worm Justice For All

Go To

Worm - Justice For All is a Worm and Infinite Dendrogram crossover by SeerKing where Taylor gains the power of Iustita, an Embryo focusing on Justice.

When Taylor Hebert Triggered in the Locker, the Entities were slow to act. Instead of the [Queen Administrator], she was gifted with the seed of power known as an [Embryo], which becomes a powerful weapon one month after The Locker. How will this change the world of Earth Bet?

Tropes found in this work:

  • An Offer You Can't Refuse: Heavily implied, but ultimately averted. See Reasonable Authority Figure below.
  • Boom, Headshot!: Taylor defeats Hamelin by shooting him in the head with one of Kid Win's laser pistols on lethal mode.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Hamelin not only kidnaps Taylor, a Trigger so new that she doesn't even have a costume yet, off the street in her civilian identity (a serious breach of the Unwritten Rules, which would tick off any cape who heard about it, villain and hero alike), he also kidnapped all of the Wards save for Shadow Stalker, along with Glory Girl and Panacea, pissing off every adult hero in the city.
  • Combo Platter Powers: Hamelin has a large number of powers, most of which he's leeching off of captive parahumans.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: While looking for Hamelin, Lady Photon gets confronted by Skidmark and his goons. She just blasts them all unconscious and moves on after calling the PRT.

  • Equivalent Exchange: Taylor can heal with her power, but expends her own stamina to do so.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Taylor staying behind in Hamelin's dimension so that all the other capes can escape has elements of this. Subverted, however, in that she eventually escapes anyway.
  • Killed Off for Real: Taylor ends up killing Hamelin with one of Kid Win's laser pistols set to lethal mode, shooting him in the head.
  • Kill ’Em All: Hamelin's ultimate goal is the death of every A- or S-class parahuman on the North American Continent, as revenge for the deaths of his family.
  • Lawful Stupid: Even after a mini-Endbringer Truce situation is declared, Aegis still tries to bring in the Undersiders after saving them from Hamelin's Pocket Dimension. Even Piggot, not exactly a fan of villainous parahumans, thinks that he's being an idiot, and decides that he needs flexibility training.

  • Load-Bearing Boss: Hamelin is this for his Pocket Dimension. If not for the unique loot drop Taylor gains after killing him, she would have also died when the pocket collapsed.
  • Mask of Sanity: Discussed regarding Hamelin, with the conclusion being that he's either fully sane or else so good at aping it that it doesn't matter. It turns out to be the second, based on the rant he gives Taylor.
  • Not Enough to Bury: Hamelin. An unfortunate but inevitable side-effect of having a Pocket Dimension as your Collapsing Lair. Overlaps with No Body Left Behind.
  • Picky Eater: Iustita will only eat homemade meals.
  • Pocket Dimension: Where Hamelin operates out of.
  • Power Parasite: Hamelin's true power allows him to leech off the powers of those capes that he's captured and left unconscious in his pocket dimension, even allowing him to use Tattletale's power while letting her suffer a Thinker headache from overusing it.
  • Pretty Little Headshots: Subtly referenced in Hamelin's death. Since it's a laser pistol and not a firearm, the shot just burns straight through his skull.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Piggot, of all people. Besides her reaction to Aegis' moment of Lawful Stupid (see above), when later faced with the signed-but-as-yet-undated Kill Order on Hamelin and a simultaneous "request" by the higher-ups to get Taylor into the Wards by whatever means necessary, Piggot specifically refuses to go the less-than-moral route of using it to coerce her with.
  • RPG Elements: Taylor's power allows her to have stats and jobs like a video game character, and she can see the levels of enemies and get drops (which can be tweaked).
  • Situational Sword:
    • Taylor's "Balance The Scales" ability renders all the enemies within a certain range at her own level of strength, which means that while it weakens stronger enemies, it also makes weaker ones stronger, rendering it less effective or even useless in some situations.
    • Hamelin's stolen Super Speed powers that allow him to go faster than anyone chasing him, but don't work when he's not being chased. (The cape that he stole this power from is aptly named "Road Runner".)
  • Slave to PR: Taylor's annoyance about PR being prioritized to the point that the Wards are virtually weaponless, save for Kid Win, is part of why she doesn't want to join the Wards.
  • Super Empowering: Cheshire stumbled across Taylor during her trigger, giving her Iustita so she could beat out the shard about to connect to her.
  • Super Speed: See Situational Sword above.
  • They Look Just Like Everyone Else!: After killing Hamelin via a laser pistol shot to the head, Taylor sees Hamelin's face and notes that he looks like any guy that you would see walking down the street.
  • Tragic Villain: Hamelin lost his family to a fight between Legend and some other heroes versus the Elite, then lost his new girlfriend as a result of the Nine.
